  1. Off to see kids, that’s the best! Who cares the number of the day, you are off to see your kids. I know it’s a long trip, but hey, you are off to see the kids! (Wish I was off to see my kid.)

    1. Absolute best, Lee Ann! So excited to see them! Thanks!

  2. Traveling mercies, Fran!

    1. UGGHH! Rain and fog the whole way. However, since it is March . . . it could have been MUCH worse! Thanks!

  3. It will be wonderful. Looking forward to hearing all about it. Safe travels!

    1. Thanks! So glad that I’m not facing winter weather – 50’s +++ YAY!

  4. I had to look up triskaidekaphobia. I think you should be fine despite the fact you’re flying on Friday the 13th. (I’ve never been a superstitious person.)

    Have an amazing trip, Fran!

    So excited and happy for you, Fran! Enjoy every moment of your visit! Safe travel!

  6. What a great way to spend some time off. Safe trip and enjoy your visit.

    1. Thanks! IT will be great! Working on WISHING the sun out!!!

  7. Fun poem. I love the repeating line. Kind of like train chugging along the track which fits the content of your poem beautifully. Safe travels!

    1. Erin,
      Too funny. I read it similarly to “I think I can” from “The Little Engine that Could”.

      I was so happy to only have rain and fog. . . and not dreaded winter ice or snow! Great travel and so good to be back with the kids!

  8. “triskaidekaphobia” – do I need to look this up?! have fun, Fran!

    1. “Fear of Friday the 13th”

  9. I guess that Friday the 13th got to you, huh? One of our vocabulary words in February was “triskaidekaphobia.” Sorry about the rain and fog, but enjoy your visit with the kids!
